Business person gives back for his birthday

2018-06-01 06:00

INSTEAD of celebrating his birthday with friends and family, today, Sanele Ndelu is turning 34-years-old and he will be donating school shoes to needy pupils of Molisana SPS — a farm school near Cedarville.

Ndelu said that this formed part of celebrating his birthday and is driven by his love for education.

Ndelu asked for donations from his friends and business people in and around Matatiele to keep pupils warm during the cold season.

“Last week, I visited the school after I was informed by one of my friends that pupils do not have shoes. I discovered many pupils who were wearing old shoes and some were not even wearing shoes because of their poor homes. I asked the school to give me the list of pupils who are in need,” said Ndelu.

In the past years, he normally celebrated his birthday with friends and family but this year, Ndelu said that he wants to change the lives of people.

Ndelu owns a branding company and is promoting tourism in Matatiele.

Last year, Ndelu and his wife Nobuhle donated school shoes to over 50 pupils from five separate schools in Matatiele and that was part of giving back to the community.

“Most pupils travel more than 10 km to school without shoes and the situation get worse at winter,” said Ndelu adding that he will be asking sponsors to donate uniforms and warm jackets for Molisana SPS pupils.

Those people who want to donate can contact Ndelu at 073 341 5257.
